Which properties, methods, and events are supported for PowerBuilder?

Pega® Robotic Automation Studio includes support for the PowerBuilder DataWindow control, which interrogates in Robotic Automation Studio as a DataGrid control.

A DataWindow control is a grid-like control that looks like a form. It has various controls, such as text fields, buttons, radio buttons, and so on, which do not have to be positioned next to each other on a horizontal dimension and can repeat vertically an indefinite number of times. Accordingly, a DataGrid in PowerBuilder must always have at least one row (starting with row number 1).

The following files are deployed:

  • OpenSpan.Translators.PowerBuilder.dll
  • OpenSpan.Adapters.PowerBuilder.dll

Version support

Robotic Automation Studio supports DataWindow versions 6.0 through 2017 and all common DataGrid properties and methods, such as Name, GetCellValue, SetCellValue, and so on. Events are supported only for versions that display under the Events support column in the following table:
